Perfectionism Resources

Not to sound too simplistic, but just take breaks. We all need them. If you’re so rigid that it’s tough, literally mark the time in your planner. Take 30 minutes a day to just go on a walk, or sit outside doing nothing. Take a break to watch your favorite show online. It’s ok to do that. In fact, I think your soul will thank you! Give yourself permission to care for yourself. -Jason Bergman

Different studies have been conducted that suggest that productivity increases when people take a break. You will actually get more done and better quality of work done if you work for 50-90 minutes and then take a 15-20 minute break. I also think the Lord knew what He was doing when He gave us the Sabbath. I know it seems like you will get behind if you do not use that day for homework, but I have learned that the Sabbath is a delight as I keep it work-free! I get refreshed and recharged on that day as I keep it special. I also recommend using Saturday or Sunday night to plan out your week with boxes of time that you are going to dedicate to various activities. Then you can plan in something special that you want to do with roommates, significant other, or family. The school year pushing forward can be a bit relentless at times. Learn to let go of the things that aren’t going to “count” as much and focus on the most important tasks. Some things may fall by the wayside, but if you’ve chosen your main priorities, they were probably the less important things. -Erin Bailey
